sall good. no worries. another trip sometime :wink:



I have purchased a new oil filter and oil. I am gonna change the oil today. just gotta find a container to put old oil into.


I un-enrolled from the school today and they are sending the money back to the loan company. and I am sending my schoolbooks back to the school. I tried contacting the loan company but their phone is all automated messages, and their website is even confusing. So I sent them a letter with a check in the mail, explaining about my unenrollment and no more need for a loan, and that here is the $1000 dollar loan dispursement money back. hopefully it works and they dont fuck it up. I despise loan companies,....so confusing.

anyway, I somehow have an extra $200.00 in my bank account...it was supposed to be taken for car insurance...I am gonna go check cause if the insurance already took the money out and i have $200 left, i am taking that with me on the trip and i can leave wedensday.

okay so my car insurance company processed my insurance a week back or whatever and I am covered for this month....yet they didnt take the $200.00 out of my bank account like they were supposed to. So I dont know.... that if I take out the $200.00 out of my bank account to take with me on the road if that will fuck anything up. I figured when I get to Oregon, I can cancel my insurance since Im gonna sell the car right away. beats me if I will be charged the $200.00 or if Geico already somehow counts it as being paid, and they just want to double up on my next paymeny (but I wont have a next payment since im cancelling insurance when i move) I think they already took the $200.00 they needed. all this is confusing as well. cause I want to make sure that $1,000 loan dispursement gets paid back to Sallie May loan company. and that Geico doesnt take out $200.00 from that $1,000.00. so i was thinking of leaving that $200.00 in there for a total of $1,200 just in case Geico decides to take out the money before Sallie Mae can cash the check.

mehhhh i hate finances. and i still have a $2,500 loan to pay back from college. when i flip the car on the market, money is going straight towards paying that off and to those who donated me money.


okay so im going to take the $200.00 out.... and as long as the sallie mae check dont get screwed up I could care less what happens with Geico, cause if they end up making me pay $200.00 end of this month again...whatever. i will take money from sellng the car and pay them.

mehh. okay off to the bank!

I’m so excited… have a safe trip! I mean across country… not to the bank. Well I hope that trip is safe to but that wasn’t what I was referring to when I said have a safe trip… whatever, you know what I mean.

Topher,

It was ironic that when you called me I was just minutes from the Oregon border and while chatting about your trip I went over the bridge and read the sign, "Welcome to Oregon" :)

Have a great trip, keep me up to date on things and I'll make sure to get a garden hose ready, because after numerous days without showering we're going to spray you off before you come inside :) Or just stand out in the rain that I'm sure will be pouring down this time of year.

Catch you soon,

thanks ya'll.

I cleaned the xtrackerx's air filter. and the oil change I preformed makes the xtrackerx run at thousand less RPM's which is great! it will save me on gas and improve performance. and the idiling RPM speed is amazing, it was 2.3 rpm's, it is now about 0.4

$20.00 filled my gastank 7/8 full. I am gonna go load my things in right now, and come early morning Im out. Ive got directions printed out and I bought all my groceries and Im set.

Cant wait! this will be my last post online til I reach Oregon. Hope everything runs smoothely and I make it there in one piece with no breakdowns. take care ya'll.

(btw driving westwards....I will gain 3 hours....so essentially I feel like Pete and Pete, when they went back in time. hehe....anyway nobody probably understands that anology. but im out. cyas)
